A Splitboard: Skin up, Ride down
Recently I have had a lot of people ask me how a splitboard works. There is a really easy explanation. You have a snowboard, you split it in half, slap some skins on the bottom, and put your bindings back on the top sheet in the middle of the board on the attachments. Bam! You have what skiers call A.T. gear. A chair lift that runs on human power.
There are hooks that allow your board to slide together and then pucks that you slide your bindings onto.
There you have it. A splitboard. Hope I don't break this one.
This is the kit I used from Voile. Check it out here
